Vogue Magazine reports that supermodel Carmen Dell’Orefice, who’s career spans 7 decades, will be the guest of honour at London College of Fashion‘s Fashion Matters Gala.
Ms Dell’Orefice first appeared in British Vogue in 1946, and is an institution of fashion and a renowned muse. Ms Dell’Orefice stated:
“It’s of most importance to me to keep connected to the younger generation that is coming along, observing the world, interpreting how they want to describe what they see, and advising their peer group on what to say by what they’re wearing,” “People lack imagination a lot of the time as they are busy doing a nine-til-five job. In the arts, you suffer for your craft, but I admire anyone who has been born with that passion. If I was going to envy anything in life – and I don’t envy much – is that this place is available to encourage real talent and support it. The arts are what carries the world forward.”
